It is of great importance that academic bodies make use of learner management software in co-ordinating the potential influx of students following the pre-budget report according to Perspective, a leading authority in distributed learning and student monitoring.
With Alistair Darling intimating in the pre-budget report recently that more provisions will be put aside for the education of 16-19 year olds, there is likely to be an influx in the number of students undertaking diploma courses under the 14-19 agenda. Perspective has indicated that it is vital that schools and colleges make good use of the technology available, to ease the transition of introducing these new students into their respective learning environments.
Software such as Perspectives CLM (Collaborative Learning Manager) can help significantly in keeping students on track in their studies, be that by picking up on poor attendance records, setting milestones, or helping students to feel good about their course by providing illustrations of how they are progressing. CLM also supports that Systems Interoperability Framework, allowing data to be shared between different software models seamlessly.
Paul Davis, Director at Perspective, said: The announcement that more funds will be provided to support the education of 16-19 year olds will have a big impact on future generation. The training of a skilled work force is essential if we are to come out of the recession economically stronger.
Institutions should not overlook the management processes of modern education, and must realise that the use of high end software will help to streamline processes and make their individual systems and the way that each entity provides education much more efficient.
PerspectiveCLM has been designed specifically to cater for the complex and growing demands of education under the 14-19 agenda by providing student monitoring data in real-time. Users have the ability to view learner statistics including attendance and progress, and also management reports for each course in its entirety, at the touch of a button.
